Section 7: HANDLING & STORAGE

Storage: Keep container tightly closed. Suitable for any general chemical storage area. Containers of this material may be hazardous when empty since they retain product residues (dust, solids); observe all warnings and precautions listed for the product.

Section 8: EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION

Airborne Exposure Limits:

Silica (synthetic, amorphous): OSHA Permissible Limit (PEL) ‐ 80 / (%Sio2) mg/m (TWA)
ACGIH Threshold Limit Value (TLV) ‐ 10 mg/m3 (TWA)

Inorganic Cobalt Compounds: ACGIH Threshold Limit Value (TLV) ‐ 0.02 mg/m3 (TWA) as Co, A3: 
Animal Carcinogen.

Engineering Controls: Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to keep airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If user operations generate dust, fume or mist, use ventilation to keep exposure to airborne contaminants below the exposure limit. 

Personal Protection: Safety glasses. Lab coat. Respirator (NIOSH Approved). Gloves.
